    Re: Elgin Cook JUCO player

    Seemed like a great recruit. He had some personal issues. I believe he got shot and his family moved and that was that.
    seemed like a talented kid though

    Probably figured he wouldn't play because we have a lot of young talent coming in next year.

    Re: Elgin Cook JUCO player

    something to do with a shooting and his family disappeared for a bit and resurfaced at that juco.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Elgin Cook JUCO player

    He was either shot, shot at, or was a suspect in a shooting and withdrew from high school.

    Pretty sure this isn't the reason. Also we need a small forward next season so we could have used him.

    Re: Elgin Cook JUCO player

    Would be a great get for you guys. I was very disappointed when he never ended up at Iowa State. I don't think anybody has the exact answer as to why he never ended up a Cyclone though.

    Ya we will know if we are one of his favorites very soon if he decides to visit us as his 3rd team behind Oregon and Gonzaga

    Re: Elgin Cook JUCO player

    If I recall, the scouting reporting was that he was(is) a great athlete, but a little raw on skills... A high upside/potential just needing some work/development.

    As others said, he had some very strange things happen in his personal life which caused him to not make it to campus.

    Most here were excited about the possibilities with Cook.

    Edit: looking at his current Rivals profile, it seems like its Oregon or Gonzaga as the two final schools for Cook
